This business rule will automatically block a parent card when any of its children cards are blocked.
The "Child card is blocked" rule is very useful for tracking bigger projects. This rule is appropriate to be used when implementing the Portfolio Kanban management scenario.
How to set up the rule?
Go to your Administration panel at the top right of your screen -> select the Business Rule tab -> "Child card is blocked" rule tab.
Note: In case that there is a set of defined rules to your account -> use the Add new rule button at the upper right side of the panel.
The "Child Card is Blocked" configuration panel has the following fields and properties:
In the Name and Description fields, you can change the name of the rule and describe the scenario you will achieve with it. This way you can create an overview of your active business rules, which upon creation are present in the Business Rule panel.
You can share the rule with other users (e.g. with a Project Manager of a board), if appropriate. In this case, they will be able to edit/disable/enable the rule.
The Business rules are a sort of "point-and-click" programming language with which you can automate any process. Each Business rule has three main properties: When; And; Then.
How to Enable the "Child card is blocked"rule?
This rule does not require a configuration. To enable it-> click on the green check mark at the top right corner of the configuration panel.
